BULL ELK BUGLING | Mating Calls | Gardiner, MT | Mammoth Hot Springs, WY | Yellowstone National Park
This video features multiple bull elk "bugling" during the "rut" in Gardiner, Montana, and Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. The "bugle" is a mating call and also warns other bulls in the area. The rut is from late August to late October. The female elk will also make "cow-calls" to communicate with the bulls. These videos were filmed on October 4th, 2020. During the rut, these bulls are so busy herding their harems of females that they barely eat or sleep and their lifespan is shortened. One bull can impregnate 20-40 cows in a season! We actually woke up to the sound of their bugles and looked out the window of our RV to see a huge bull chasing a disinterested (or hard-to-get) cow/female elk. Thanks for watching!
